China Ministry of Nature Resources (Abbreviation in MNR) Laboratory of Deep Earth Science and Technology (formerly the SinoProbe Center) - is a new government-funded national fundamental research unit. It will serve as a platform of deep earth scientific prospective research; the development center for core technology and key equipment for deep earth exploration; a support platform for the detection of deep energy, and key mineral and underground space; the innovation base for deep earth observation experiments; the platform for sharing big data and the observing facilities for deep earth experiments; a new platform for international and intranational cooperation and talent development. It will be the operational unit of the China Deep Earth Exploration Program, which is one of the national major scientific programs extending to 2030.
The China MNR Laboratory of Deep Earth Science and Technology relies on the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences. It is directly administrated by the Ministry of Natural Resources. It will use a flat management structure and flexible mechanism. It not only re-organizes new research branches, it integrates multiple existing institutions through different formats. The center will be constructed to facilitate joint experiments and tasks across the departments, and to pursue the maximum use of existing talent, material and financial resources by taking great advantages of different units, departments and nations. It will be a win-win sharing platform for all the earth scientists and institutions at worldwide.
At this session, Chinese Units will announce the new policies and positions to researchers worldwide with the goal of recruiting researchers, innovators, motivators and leaders to participate in the Deep Earth System Science (DESS). DESS includes Exploration of Deep Earth Structure, 4D Observation of Crustal Activity, Probing on Deep Material Composition and Distribution, Deep Material Cycles and Energy Conversion, Dynamic Behavior between Deep Earth Spherical Interfaces, Geodynamic Simulation, Data Processing and Imaging, Deep Exploration of Ore Deposits and Its 3D Transparent, Super Deep Scientific Drilling, Exploration of Deep Gas and Oil, Geothermal Detection and Utilization, Development of Technology and Equipment (especially in geophysics), Deep Earth Science Big Data Management and Mining, and more. Please share your scientific experience, achievements, planning and visions of your field. We will provide diverse positions, hiring models, flexible work approaches and research funds to the geoscientists who studied in geology, geophysics, natural resources, engineering geology & geophysics, and big data at present, whatever you are in the early career or have the world reputation senior scientists. We will provide different integrating research & benefit packages according the individual situation based on the bilateral satisfied agreement through personal negotiation.
This Session would be a Close-Door Meeting. Only the Units Announcements and Explanation will go on the public both on the web and virtual meeting.
